I 've traveled to more than 125 countries, worked in Kenya, Ghana, China, Mexico, and served in the U.S. Peace Corps in Poland. Most recently, I traveled to Outer Mongolia and rode horseback to the Siberian border to meet the Tsasat people, keepers of wild reindeer. I moved to San Miguel de Allende 8 years ago and live here full time. I am a former teacher, pilot, and businesswoman, I saw a need to help the children of San Miguel have more educational opportunities. By presenting "San Miguel's Secrets Revealed", a series of 6 virtual tours about the history, culture, architecture of this UNESCO city and by giving history walking tours, I have met many others who also want to support San Miguel's children.

This is a great tour. Kathleen is very knowledgeable in the history of SMA. She does lots of research on her own and gives this tour to help the children SMA. All proceeds go to help the children. She is informative and the way she presents the history is very entertaining. She is full of energy. I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour. Kathleen is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour covered many important spots and age made history come alive with great anecdotes. And she shared excellent tips on shopping and lunch spots when I asked. Nice pace that included frequent sitting stops and bathroom breaks.
